  • Calidad replied to the thread Alphonso Davies.
    Think he’s a fantastic player. So much ability. Still probably yet to see the best of him either.
  • One of the observations that I’d make about Italy, is that they have very little legitimate immigration. Whether it’s been Albanians, Romanians (pre FOM), or more recently, Africans and Asians (pre-dominantly from the Indian sub-continent) there...
  • Calidad replied to the thread Vaccinated Players.
    I completely agree, and I reiterate - as long as people accept that not taking the vaccine may have consequences as to what they can or can’t do. So if they want to to jet off on a nice sunny holiday, but said destination will only accept...
  • Calidad replied to the thread Jack Grealish | Man City.
    David Silva is very one footed. Didn’t he play in the middle quite a bit? As I said earlier in the thread, Grealish is never a 100m player. I don’t even think he’s a 50m player. Yet, he is a good player. I think he offers more and will offer...
  • Still, worse ways to spend your days than living in Australia no doubt earning in excess of 100k a year.
  • Racism isn’t exclusive Racism isn’t exclusive to a particular race, is it? It can be directed or suffered by all. That isn’t to diminish its prevalence amongst certain quarters, but I think the inference that Alonso (as a white person) is...
  • Calidad replied to the thread Thiago Silva | Chelsea Player.
    Why would you need to watch the Norwegian 3rd tier to have knowledge of someone who has captained and made 100 appearances for Brazil? I’m not trying to be cantankerous, but I don’t think it’s particularly controversial in acknowledging that...
  • Calidad replied to the thread Thiago Silva | Chelsea Player.
    Then they are PL fans, not football fans. You don’t have to be a particularly knowledgeable football fan to know that Thiago Silva has long been regarded as one of world’s best CB’s. I mean he’s played for Milan, PSG and has 100 caps for...
  • Calidad replied to the thread Tammy Abraham - Roma Striker.
    No? Can’t say I follow.
  • Calidad replied to the thread Tammy Abraham - Roma Striker.
    Probably won’t settle and will be back in England in a season or two. Wouldn’t even be surprised if he get’s loaned back to a club in the EPL next season.
  • Ah. Thank you for clarifying. In that case, I don’t think what we see in England, on a societal level, or politically, is all that much different from what we see in any other comparative (Western) nation. Elsewhere, it’s often a great deal...
  • Sure. That said, his legacy can legitimately be questioned. City and Guardiola’s achievements to me, all seem rather hollow.
  • It’s not clear, at least not to me. That’s why I asked the question. When you say English society is out of control, I would have thought that by default, you are drawing a comparison, because if taken in isolation the remark would have no...
  • Calidad replied to the thread Michael Ballack’s son.
    Awful news. Not that any of us need reminding, but once again, it shows how precious life is.
  • I’m sorry, I think you are being disingenuous here. Are you attributing the behaviour of some English fans to Boris Johnson? The events seen this summer are not unique, nor are they exclusive to the UK. Earlier in this thread, I was very very...
